A Futurelooks News Flash - Futurelooks Previews the NEW ASUS Z77 LGA1155 Motherboard Series
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks was in California checking out the new ASUS Intel 7 Series boards. Here`s what we can tell you... * * *Futurelooks Previews the NEW ASUS Z77 LGA1155 Motherboard Series* * * I recently took a quick trip down to visit ASUS to see their new Z77 motherboards that support Intel?s upcoming 3rd Generation Core Series Processors. In my opinion, it really says something a company?s confidence in its products when they are able to show off their products well in advance of launch while answering all your most detailed questions. Naturally, the ASUS Z77 series motherboards support socket LGA 1155 processors, and is still backwards compatible with 2nd generation ?Sandy Bridge? and upcoming 3rd Generation Intel Core Series processors. The entire line also received a face lift and quite a few new updates. Let?s have a quick look! *"

AMD Catalyst 12.2 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I hate to say it, but since Terry Makedon left the AMD driver team it just hasn`t felt the same and if there was any situation that would cause AMD to miss a month it was going to be that and while it`s been a while since he left, they work so far ahead that it was going to take time for the cracks to begin to show. This February the company also had an extra day thanks to the leap year, and they still didn`t hit it. While AMD released a Pre-Certified version of the driver earlier in the month, which they say is exactly the same; it just doesn`t have the Windows logo. The bottom line is they`ve prided themselves that for some odd 7 years they`ve offered a WHQL driver every month."

Choiix Wake Up Folio @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finally decided to drop the cash on an iPad 2 did you? Well if you made the investment you are going to want to protect it. When I bought my wife an iPad a couple of weeks ago, the first thing I went looking for was a case. Cooler Master presented the opportunity to review their Choiix branded ?Wake Up Folio? which would provide the iPad something in the way of protection. The Wake Up Folio comes in a variety of colors to choose from."

Corsair Force Series GT 180GB SSD Review @ circuitREMIX
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In continuing our series of SSD reviews, we`re looking at a drive from Corsair, the 180GB Force Series GT. As our last reviews were of drives in the 240-256GB range, we asked Corsair for some of their drives in the same range. But alas, their marketing team didn`t have any in stock, but they did have a 180GB drive available for us to test. Knowing that performance of 120GB SSDs generally fall behind that of their 240GB brethren due to NAND configuration, I was skeptical towards the level of performance that this 180GB drive could push out. But as this drive was from Corsair`s fastest line of SSDs, Force GT, I decided to give it a chance ...and I ended up being surprised."

Griffin Beacon for Android @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 11:59A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have too many remotes, I?ve got seven of them for my home theater system, that?s just too many and it can get confusing at times. I need a universal remote, but I?ve yet to find one that works with everything I own. Today for review I have a product from Griffin called the Beacon and it?s basically a universal remote, but it works with Android devices. Yes you can control your TV, Cable or Blu-ray player with your phone or tablet. It sounds like a great idea in theory, but is it a great product? I have to say I?m leaning towards yes, but it?s not quite perfect yet? "

HIS 7750 iCooler 1GB GDDR5 PCI-E Video Card @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 11:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have the HIS 7750 iCooler edition video card that features 1gb of DDR5 ram on board. This card features DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connections on it and it?s more of a budget style card coming in at around $110.00. The HIS 7750 features their own iCooler GPU cooler on it that does a very good job at keeping things cool and being quiet while doing it. I?ve put it up against a few other cards I?ve got on hand so let?s see how it does in benchmarks and gaming?. "

Intel Core i7-3820 Extreme Edition CPU @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 11:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not quite a year after Intel released Sandy Bridge with the new LGA-1155 platform they upped the performance bar again. This time around, the Sandy Bridge-E LGA-2011 platform is bigger, faster, and represents the top-of-the-line for consumer computing. Intel Extreme Edition processors have always brought out the best that the company has to offer, but the Extreme moniker isn`t limited to the performance. The price of Extreme Edition CPUs generally matches, with the highest end of these clocking in near $1000. The LGA-2011 platform offers a lot in terms of performance computing, besides just the Extreme Edition CPUs, though. You also get a full 40 PCI-E lanes and quad-channel memory compatibility. So what about those of us that don`t need a $1000 CPU, but we still want to use three or four GPUs to their full potential? For that, we have the Intel i7-3820 3.6GHz CPU. In this article, Benchmark Reviews goes under the hood of the littlest Sandy Bridge-E processor."

Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1000W PSU review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silent Pro M2 line of power supplies come with modular cabling, a 135mm hydraulic dynamic bearing fan, copper-aluminium heatsink, single +12V rail and dual-layer EMI filter. Today we focus on the kilowatt model priced 169.90 EUR. A very nice power supply rates 80+ silver, that comes with a modular design and one big massive whopping 12V rail, which we all like so very much. In fact that translates to 80A / 12V on our 1000W model. Part of the new spec is RoHS and ERP 2010 Certification for a more eco-friendly design and power efficiency. The 135mm fan has been improved by making use of a durable Hydraulic Dynamic Bearing. Read the review right here"

Corsair Vengeance 1300 Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:29A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair first entered the gaming-grade headset market with the HS1, a digital model we already tested. Now they put on the market the Vengeance line, comprised of an analog model (the 1300) and its digital equivalent (the 1500). We will test the Vengeance 1300, beginning with a look at its physical characteristics and then proceeding to its performance."

Corsair Vengeance K90 review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:29A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Corsair Vengeance K90 keyboard. The K90 has everything the K60 has in terms of the overall basis and concept, but it adds some more features. Adjustable backlit keys, a bucket load of function `G` keys that can be programmed as macro and a keyboard wide wrest rest all in all making the K90 superior towards the K60 in a couple of ways.

Corsair Vengeance M60 Review - XSReviews
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:29A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve already favourably reviewed the Corsair Vengeance M90 gaming mouse, and now it`s time to try out its younger sibling, the M60. Apart from sharing a name with one of gaming`s most treasured light machine guns, what does the M60 offer? Well, it`s aimed at a much different audience: FPS gamers. With few additional buttons and a dedicated `sniper mode`, the M60 offers a much lighter experience that should definitely please its target market. How does it live up to expectations? Read on to find out."

ASUS Technical Summit: Intel 7 Series Motherboards
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS, ever the gracious hosts, had us out to Dallas, TX recently to show us the company’s upcoming motherboard series and let us play with some test systems to see if we could break them. (Full disclosure: We did. But we fixed them, we think.) There is much we learned there that we can’t yet discuss (suffice it to say you’ll want to stay tuned for more on Intel's 3rd generation Core series processors and 7-series chipset), but we can tell you all about the new line of ASUS motherboards based on Intel’s Z77 series chipset.

AMD Radeon HD 7870 and 7850 GPU Previews
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we are, less than three weeks removed from the launch of the Radeon HD 7700 series, and AMD is already at it again. Today we’ll be showing you the first two members of the Radeon HD 7800 series of graphics cards, the Radeon HD 7870 GHz and Radeon HD 7850. These two graphics cards are based on yet another new GPU design, which features AMD’s Graphics Core Next architecture, or GCN. Whereas the high-end Radeon HD 7900 series cards feature AMD’s Tahiti GPU and the more mainstream Radeon HD 7700 series is based on the company’s Cape Verde GPU, the new Radeon HD 7800 series is built around a GPU codenamed Pitcairn...

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
